    Form reset button in Seam

    Terry Apprentice

      I can't seem to get form Reset button working, to empty out text typed in search fields. It does nothing when clicked. I use default Seam mechanism to perform search, ie EntityList...EntityHome...

      Do I must have a backing bean action method to somehow make it work?

      <div class="actionButtons">
      <h:commandButton id="search" value="Search" action="/OrganisationUserList.xhtml"/>
      <h:commandButton value="Reset" type="reset"/>
      <s:button view="/OrganisationUserEdit.xhtml" id="create" value="Create User">
      <f:param name="organisationUserId"/>
      </s:button>
      </div>

          No you don't need a backing bean since no server round-trip is made when using a reset button. Are the search field and the reset button under the same form tag?

            Yes they are under the same form, the only form on the page. Please see code below.

            <h:form id="organisationUser">
             <div>
             <h:panelGrid columns="2" rowClasses="prop" columnClasses="name,value" border="0" >
             <h:outputLabel for="username">Username</h:outputLabel>
             <h:inputText id="username"
             value="#{organisationUserList.organisationUser.username}"/>
             ...
             </h:panelGrid>
            
             <table>
             <tr class="prop">
             <td class="name"> </td>^
             <td class="value">
             <div class="actionButtons">
             <h:commandButton id="search" value="Search" action="/OrganisationUserList.xhtml"/>
             <h:commandButton value="Reset" type="reset"/>
             <s:button view="/OrganisationUserEdit.xhtml" id="create" value="Create User">
             <f:param name="organisationUserId"/>
             </s:button>
             </div>
             </td>
             </tr>
             </table>
             </div>
            </h:form>
